Why Is He So Jealous, Even of My Own Brothers??

Mon, Mar 12th 2012

How long have you been together? 8 months

What is your age range? 20/25

Please share your story:

My boyfriend and I have been together for 8 months and everything was good in the beginning. Then, slowly, I started seeing how fast he got angry and how jealous he was. I thought it was cute until it started becoming a controlling issue. He started accusing my own brother of checking me out and how I must like it. My brothers and I are really close so we joke around and make fun of each other . But he is like obsessive and it scares me because I jut got out of a 9 year relationship with an abusive man and we had the same problems.

What should I do?

Is it me? I feel like I will never be happy..

Please help me! Should I continue in this relationship?
